Best Waterproof Golf Trousers 2023


The best waterproof golf trousers to help you stay dry when the heavens open. 

Many golfers find themselves pulling on a pair of the best waterproof golf trousers every time they play in winter. Some like the extra warmth they offer; others just want to keep their best golf trousers clean. But in this day and age, performance golf trousers can keep you warmer and more comfortable on the course than waterproof bottoms, whenever it’s not raining.

Winter performance golf trousers are a relatively new invention, and we’ve only just discovered their benefits for ourselves. But we’re sold on what they bring to the table.

Their warm fleece lining, water and dirt resistant treatments and more breathable fabrics have real benefits over a cotton chino (that soaks and holds moisture like a sponge) or waterproof trousers.

EXPLAINED: How we test golf equipment

Ping Vision Waterproof Trousers

Sizes 30/30-42/36 | Colours Black, Navy | Waterproof Warranty Yes

Ping Vision are among the best waterproof golf trousers.

Forget any preconceptions you have that performance winter trousers are thick and cumbersome. Ping use hollow fibre Thermolite technology so the Vision are very light yet cosy to wear.

A polyester outer is breathable and easier to maintain; if you get dirty, they’re easy to clean and still look new.

A water-resistant finish will bead up a light shower, so for many rounds you won’t even need your waterproof trousers.

Under Armour ColdGear Infrared Showdown Waterproof Trousers

Sizes 30-3038/34 | Colours Black | Waterproof Warranty No

Under Armour ColdGear Infrared are among the best waterproof golf trousers.

Under Armour’s ColdGear Infrared technology is seriously clever as from just a simple pattern on the inside of the garment it absorbs your own body heat and uses it to keep you warm.

The water repellent treatment also keeps you dry without sacrificing breathability.
